The Federal Republic of Yahlia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kjeila Pentrăscu with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.587 billion Yahlians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Belgrade. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Yahlian economy, worth a remarkable 1,911 trillion euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 222,624 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, the government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, and there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons'. Crime is totally unknown. Yahlia's national animal is the badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is secularism.

Yahlia is ranked 2,446th in the world and 36th in Europe for Lowest Crime Rates, with 127.95 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
